Livingston Co. man gets prison on child porn charges

LIVINGSTON CO., Mich (WLNS) – A Livingston County man has been sentenced to prison for distributing child pornography.

According to our media partners at WHMI, 45-year-old Michael Hockenberg entered a plea in June to distributing or promoting child pornography.

Thursday he was sentenced to serve between 2 and 4 years in prison. The incidents occurred last June. Police claimed that Hockenbery was excited by watching a video of a beheading. That, in turn, led him to view child pornography. Heckenberg disputed that he was excited by the video and was actually disgusted by it.
